A Contemporary Look: Beautiful by Cindy Martinusen-Coloma


        Her friends once thought she was perfect. Now she must face the mirror--and herself--to discover what true beauty is.
        Ellie Summerfield has everything a girl could want--she's beautiful, she's Senior Class President, has a calendar full of social engagements, volunteer commitments, and church activities. In short, she's perfect, according to most of the students at West Redding High School. But something is bothering Ellie, like a loose string on a dress she can feel but can't see. Does she really love her boyfriend, Ryan? Who are her true friends? And is she really happy in her picture-perfect life?

       Then in the course of a few minutes, the loose string in Ellie's life completely unravels. Forever changed, she must face herself as she discovers what it really means to be beautiful.

       I loved this book, it spoke to my heart.
       All I can say is, whoever has wished that they were more beautiful and more successful, or whoever has simply felt discouraged and unimportant, this book is for you.
       It certainly was for me.
